Some months ago, I read an article that provided do's and don't's to keep in
mind when writing to an international audience--red is a funeral colour in
certain
countries,some cultures are offended by the use of "female" so use "woman"
instead, etc.
Are you familiar with this subject/article? Do you know who published this
article? Do you know of a similar article?

Your help is most appreciated. Thanks for your time.
